Spring is in the air – Spring cleaning

Previously I promised my mom to help her clean up her wardrobe – select all garments and shoes she is not wearing anymore and now the time has come!

Everything was taken out and carefully inspected.

BVK evening workshop

One of the first sewing blogs I followed was THE SEWING DIVAS sewing, design, fashion. It was run by few bloggers and one of them was Els – member of Branchevereniging van Kleermakers & Modevakscholen – BVK (Dutch Association of Tailor and Fashion Design Schools) – “It is an organisation which focuses on the interests of clothing manufacturers, tailors and directors of fashion design schools. It also provides consumer information. Among its members the BvK has, self-employed, men and women’s [tailored] clothing manufacturers, couturiers, tailors employed by couturiers, designers and manufacturers of costumes for the stage as well as those who own a clothing repair shop and various other fashion studios. Members also include a large number of fashion design schools.

I knew they organise all kind of interesting challenges, events and regional meetings where they share knowledge on tailoring.
I was often checking the agenda with these regional meetings as I was interested in joining such meeting. However very often it was at the same time when I had to leave for my work. This time I had luck! I contacted the regional coordinator  -Marijke and I was glad to hear I could join it even though I am not a member.

The topic of this meeting was – draping a collar by Anneke Smeets.
After short introduction round Anneke started to drape a collar of a jacket.

Fabric market- April 2013 Apeldoorn

So, I have done it again… I think that this long winter dark days inspired me to buy these sunny, bright fabrics for summer during the Stoffenspektakel in Apeldoorn (NL).

The plan is as follow:

Dresses (maybe only skirt – still to decide) – cotton, linen en silk – some mixtures of these:

Top – jersey viscosa – it is nice drapping fabric but I don’t think I will make another D2N top by Maria Denmark. I would like to test other pattern:

The Great Gatsby Sewing Challenge

Erin from Miss Crayola Creepy officially announced The Great Gatsby Sewing Challenge!

The challenge is inspired by the movie release of The Great Gatsby. The main idea is to make a dress, a blouse, a headband, a hat, anything with a 1920s feel.

I love this period so I am really thinking of joining in… I have to look at my schedule – the deadline will be at the end of May.
